Abby and Zack are newlyweds subletting an apartment in the Belleville area of Paris. She’s a yoga instructor and he’s a Doctor Without Borders. Their life is idyllic, if not especially noteworthy. That is until Abby walks in on Zack with his pants literally around his ankles. As she starts pulling at little threads having to do with how Zack spends his day, BELLEVILLE builds toward a climax that asks if we can ever truly know another person. This sexy, funny, scary, and tense pseudo-thriller from one of America's hottest new playwrights will unnerve as quickly as it entertains.

Two-time Canadian Folk Music Awards nominee, Sarah Jane Scouten, will be pairing up with local Portland performers every night this week, including Tony Furtado, Kristin Andreassen, Anna Tivel and Jeffrey Martin. See full schedule: https://www.facebook.com/events/1553806438206925/ At age 5, Sarah Jane Scouten was sitting on the dining room table, singing “Lace and Pretty Flowers,” by Canadian folk and country musician, Willie P. Bennett. Hank Williams and Stan Rogers were her greatest inspirations, both a staple at Sunday morning pancake breakfast and afterward, singing bluegrass and gospel music with her father. Her talent for performing came naturally, and as chance would have it, so emerged a knack for songwriting. Bringing us up to date, Sarah Jane Scouten is an international touring songwriter, loved by audiences across the Northern Hemisphere. Based in Montreal, Sarah Jane became the leader of one of the finest folk acts in the city, as she put together her brilliant string band. With flavours of Lucinda Williams, Iris DeMent, Old Crow Medicine Show and a wealth of old-time and bluegrass music, her songs are faithful to a long-standing folk music tradition, but often spill over into modern themes that are outspoken and edgy, from homelessness to midwifery to tongue-in-cheek heartache songs and unabashed Canadiana. In 2014 Sarah Jane released her second full-length album The Cape, named after her childhood playground Cape Roger Curtis and a stormy seven-and-a-half minute long ballad by the same name. The record throws a wake for all the things we won’t have back again. You’ll find it in the shameless nostalgia for place, time, lost loved ones, frayed family ties and bonds too strong to break. A traditionalist at heart, she once again shows her signature flair for the roots of roots music, ranging from Western-swing, honky-tonk, Cajun and Appalachian string band music and a hint of the Maritimes. With respect for these roots, she writes from her own perspective, rather than taking on a persona or copying a style, and only writes about what she knows profoundly. As such, the album hits hard and close to home, but also takes off into fiction with songs like “Black Strap Sadie,” “Our Small Town” and “I Had To Be Right.” There are songs about the North, the South, the East and the West and songs like “When I Told You I Loved You” about traveling in between. The album finishes with an original French-language song/fiddle tune called "Change of Heart Waltz," written in a Cajun style. The new album was recorded and produced by Juno-nominated producer Andrew Collins (The Foggy Hogtown Boys, The Creaking Tree String Quartet and Annielou) at Sytesound Studio in Toronto and was mastered by David Travers-Smith. With the string band sound at the core of the record, The Cape also features Aaron Goldstein on pedal steel (City and Colour, Daniel Romano), Treasa Levasseur on accordion (Corin Raymond and the Sundowners), Sly Juhas on drums and Sarah Jane’s sister and fellow Montreal songwriter, Anna Scouten lending her arresting blood-harmonies.

Free and open to the public! Learn about the “Green Loop” concept – an easy and smooth linear open space connection through the Central City district’s parks and open spaces. The “Green Loop” will increase access to the city’s largest employment center, expanding healthy activities and active transportation throughout a 10-mile walking and biking path intended to serve the needs and aspirations of all ages and abilities. It would invite residents, employees, and visitors from the city and from around the world to experience Portland’s Central City in an entirely new way. This connected path would allow people to take a break from work, walk or ride among trees and in beautiful parks, enjoy restaurants and shops, or just breathe fresh air and get some exercise. The concept brings together and links multiple infrastructure projects (completed, under construction, or planned) through the Central City. Tour the potential alignment on the West side of the river – connecting the Broadway Bridge, North and South Park Blocks, Portland State University, and OHSU at South Waterfront. Discuss with city staff and active transportation advocates the potential challenges, opportunities, and solutions at specific stops along the way. Learn about and help inform a Portland State University Masters of Regional Planning Graduate Workshop focused on the southern end of this portion that will recommend place-specific desired public space amenities, facility design ideas, and potential implementation strategies.

Come share yummy food and learn more about Icarus Portland's Closed Group at an Open House and Potluck. Get plugged-in to rad mental health resources! You are not alone and your experiences are important and have meaning! This is a chance to meet other Icarus people (Icari?) and check out the "closed-group" model. Our group meets weekly and is not usually open to drop-ins. In the closed-group model, when people join the group they agree to show up consistently to meetings and be accountable for their impact on the group, which allows people to build strong community, develop trust and go deep in sharing feelings and experiences. Our goal is to build mutual aid networks and support each other in ways that are validating instead of pathologizing. The Icarus Project describes itself as: "A support network and media project by and for people who experience the world in ways that are often diagnosed as mental illness. We envision a new culture that allows the space and freedom for exploring different states of being, and recognizes that breakdown can be the entrance to breakthrough. We aim to create a language that is so vast and rich that it expresses the infinite diversity of human experiences." (theicarusproject.net) http://www.facebook.com/events/419089994916204/

KBOO Presents: OCCUPY THE FARM/ film and community forum with film director, farmers and beekeepers. After the film Todd Darling, film director will discuss film, and a panel of farmers and beekeepers will answer questions about ways to support pollinators and farms. OCCUPY THE FARM tells the story of a community's fight to save public land for urban farming. When 200 farmers march to the gates of the last farmland in the urban East Bay near Oakland, they don't carry signs protesting University of California's plans to build a shopping center. Instead, they carry tents, tools and 15,000 seedlings. They clip the padlock off the gate and march onto the fields. What happens next will change the fate of the land and introduce a new strategy for activism. From tilling soil and watering vegetables to police raids, from lawsuits to overflowing harvests, OCCUPY THE FARM reveals a resourceful, creative, and determined community responding with direct action to a serious social need: access to healthy food.

Nagasita Tribal Fusion Belly Dancer and more! ABOUT THE UMBRELLA FESTIVAL: In 2012, The Alberta Rose Theatre joined forces with Noah Mickens of Wanderlust Circus to produce the first ever variety arts festival in Portland. The following year, veteran performer David “Leapin’ Louie” Lichtenstein added his lifetime of connections and expertise to the mix when he assumed the mantle of co-director. Since then, The Umbrella Festival of Circus and Comedy has brought together a fantastical mix of entertainers young and old; from the grand highways and hidden paths of The Endless Road that connects all the world’s cities like a circulatory system forged from asphalt and steel. With the help of our cousins from Seattle’s Moisture Festival, and a soon-to-be-inaugurated variety arts fest in San Francisco, we’re building an old-fashioned circuit to bring the global circus renaissance right to your doorstep! This year’s festival includes TV star Daniel “Rubberboy” Browning Smith, outsider music legend Artis the Spoonman, nine traveling circus troupes, five bands, four members of the Cirque du Soleil, and solo practitioners of every description. Never has such a mob of bohemians been assembled beneath a single banner, on a single weekend, in a single theater! THE UMBRELLA FESTIVAL of Circus and Comedy is in full swing this Spring. ABOUT THE ARTISTS “Rubberboy” Daniel Browning Smith http://www.therubberboy.com/ Daniel Browning Smith, host of the History network series “Stan Lee’s Superhumans” and Guinness World Records’ Most Flexible Man, is a classically trained contortionist who has used his superhuman flexibility to bring the magnetic appeal of contortion to new heights. From his early career when he began accumulating his Guinness World Records and perfecting his renowned “Rubberboy” act and character, to more than a decade long foray into movies and commercials both acting and doing astounding stunts previously only possible with CGI, to hosting a television series alongside childhood hero Stan Lee - Daniel has worked hard to solidify his place within the rich history of the world of contortion. He is a truly groundbreaking contortionist who has been able to take his skills and apply them in venues and markets that hadn’t been done by the centuries of mystics and circus contortionists who have come before him. Artis the Spoonman http://www.artisthespoonman.net/ CIVIL-MINDED, GLOBAL CONSCIOUS, RHYTHM & RHYME Artis the Spoonman is a living myth. Since 1972 he has created a state-of-the-art cultural legend. From the sidewalks and bars of Seattle, San Francisco,Manhattan,Sidney, London, Dublin, Munich and Singapore, to the theatres of Broadway,the stages of International and National television and the recording studios of Frank Zappa and Soundgarden, his spellbinding, faster-than-the-eye-can-track spoonplaying has been a passionate rhythm enhancement for Rock, Fusion, Folk, Jazz, Bluegrass, Classical and Uncatagorizable music, virtually everywhere. His avant-garde percussion, coupled with his contagious spirit,will change your life- or at least your ideas on cutlery. Shoehorn http://www.shoehornmusic.com/ Shoehorn is an original performance artist who creates music with his feet and dances with his horn. Michael Shoehorn Conley has combined organic body rhythms and sophisticated jazz forms and concepts into an entertaining spectacle. While specializing in sax and tap dance, he is a multi-instrumentalist, arranger and composer, utilizing a variety of wind and percussion instruments, original poetry and songs and an ear for music from around the world. In addition to his shoes and horn, he uses the Tappercussion(TM) Mark VII e-tap (TM) MIDI instrument to add percussive sounds like drum set,steel drums, sitar and marimba. Whether playing as a sideman with performers and performance troupes such as Wanderlust Circus Orchestra, Fools in Paradise marimba band, Baby Gramps, Rhys Thomas, and Leapin' Louie Lichtenstein or playing solo at a country fair, this one man can fill a stage and hold an audience. Shoehorn is an internationally recognized tap soloist, featured in the Emmy-nominated PBS TV documentary JUBA:Masters of Tap & Percussive Dance, and has toured Russia and Austria with other leading tap artists, including Savion Glover and Jason Samuels Smith. He performed in The Elegance of Tap, the Comedy of Tap (with Bill Irwin) and Tap Treasures and Tap Masters at Tap City, the New York City International Tap Dance Festival. The Wanderlust Circus Orchestra www.wanderlustcircus.com The WANDERLUST CIRCUS ORCHESTRA crashes and reels like a calliope freight train off the rails, weaving miraculous feats of skill through the extravagant orchestral warp of our prodigious band. Tap-dancing sax king Shoehorn is featured alongside frenetic frontman William Batty, sweating and sighing through standards and originals in the Spike Jones fashion while the finest circus and vaudeville acts in the Pacific Wheel Circuit show off their explosive best. Bring grandma and the kids – all are welcome at the front of joyous panic. Rose-city Acro Devils We are RAD! The Rose-city Acro Devils!

April 2nd - April 5th ABOUT THE UMBRELLA FESTIVAL: In 2012, The Alberta Rose Theatre joined forces with Noah Mickens of Wanderlust Circus to produce the first ever variety arts festival in Portland. The following year, veteran performer David “Leapin’ Louie” Lichtenstein added his lifetime of connections and expertise to the mix when he assumed the mantle of co-director. Since then, The Umbrella Festival of Circus and Comedy has brought together a fantastical mix of entertainers young and old; from the grand highways and hidden paths of The Endless Road that connects all the world’s cities like a circulatory system forged from asphalt and steel. With the help of our cousins from Seattle’s Moisture Festival, and a soon-to-be-inaugurated variety arts fest in San Francisco, we’re building an old-fashioned circuit to bring the global circus renaissance right to your doorstep! This year’s festival includes TV star Daniel “Rubberboy” Browning Smith, outsider music legend Artis the Spoonman, nine traveling circus troupes, five bands, four members of the Cirque du Soleil, and solo practitioners of every description. Never has such a mob of bohemians been assembled beneath a single banner, on a single weekend, in a single theater! THE UMBRELLA FESTIVAL of Circus and Comedy is in full swing this Spring. ABOUT THE ARTISTS: Patrick McGuire https://www.facebook.com/geometrixbypat/about Night Flight http://nightflightaerial.com/ Night Flight is a performance company based in Portland, OR. We produce big, colorful, beautiful shows that combine breathtaking aerial artistry and playful storytelling. We are extremely passionate about what we do and we believe wholeheartedly that love is in the details. Aside from our shows, we are also an Aerial and Circus Arts Studio and teach Series and Drop-in classes. Our Series include classes in trapeze, silks, lyra, rope, straps, handstands, stretching and contortion. As teachers, we are dedicated to creating fun, safe and challenging classes that focus on individualized attention. We are invested in our students and helping them reach their goals. Tempos www.temposcircus.com TEMPOS is a contemporary circus troupe that combines elements of physical theatre, dance, and acrobatics. As an ensemble, we strive to create a tension between fluid, rhythmic movement and dynamic, static postures. Like good music, there are moments of quiet shaped by rhythm and melody. Michael Trautman http://www.michaeltrautman.com/ Michael Trautman started out in life as a fairly normal kind of person. After growing up in Springfield, Illinois, he attended William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri where he studied Political Science with the intention of becoming a lawyer. After four years of college, Michael decided that the legal profession was not going to be as much fun as he felt one should have with their career, so he left school and started looking for something to do that would be fun and fulfilling. In 1976 he took his first Mime class, and in 1977 was invited to become a founding member of Mimewock, a Kansas City based school and performing company. Since then, he has been having fun performing throughout the world, and has achieved a very high level of fulfillment from providing comic relief to those in need. Brittany Walsh http://acrobritt.com/ Brittany was raised doing gymnastics, and competed nationally and internationally for 12 years. She moved on from competition at the age of 18 years, but chose to remain close to the sport by coaching and choreographing routines for national level gymnasts. In spring of 2005, Brittany discovered the art of hand balancing and unearthed an intense passion within. In fall of the same year, Brittany was accepted as a company member of the renowned physical theatre company known as Do Jump!. There, new avenues of physicality and creativity were opened to her through dance, acrobatics, and work on various aerial apparatus. Since this time, Brittany has trained and collaborated with very well-recognized circus instructors and performers and has developed her skill to exactitude over the years. To this day, Brittany has continued working with Do Jump!, performing locally and nationally, and has established a name for herself as a solo hand balancer and contortionist in the Portland Metro area. Pink Lady and the John Bennett Jazz Band http://swingtimevarietyshow.com/bands/pink-lady As Pink Lady sings the songs of the prohibition era, this combo is lead by rag time piano jockey John Bennett and also includes vintage arch top guitarist Steve Boden, Joe Haegele on Drums, Wayne Travillion on trombone and Will Amend on Double Bass. Zenith http://www.zenithperformancearts.com/ Zenith has performed at numerous venues in the US and internationally including street fairs, luaus, music festivals, parades, restaurants, and even the Miss Oregon stage. Notable performances include the Full Moon Party in Thailand, FreakNight, Paradiso and Sasquatch Music Festival. Zenith has a varied background in dance including hip hop, belly dance, Cuban salsa, Argentine tango, blues, swing dance, and eight other forms of ballroom dance. This allows Zenith the flexibility to tailor her style and costuming to enhance your event. Whether you need a performer for an electronic music festival, a circus-themed benefit dinner or a summer luau, Zenith can meet your needs! -Zenith is currently a resident artist of SuperGeek League and of Q NightClub, both based in Seattle.

A positively unmissable night of hot tunes, cold drinks, and high flying performances to astound and amaze! Nothing less than bodily contortion, death-defying aerials and hot-stepping neo-swing dance will do against the fantastical soundscape of Three for Silver (Portland’s own beloved old-world folk trio), Hot Damn Scandal (tipsy American gysy tunes imported from Bellingham) and Intuitive Compass (Vaudevillian folk music, fresh off the endless road) $15 at the door, or a mere $10 for those dapper gentlefolks who arrive dressed to kill! --- THREE FOR SILVER combines a gritty aesthetic, world folk traditions, and virtuosic technique with a modern songwriting sense. Fresh on the heels of the recent wildly successful release of their second full length album "Bury Me Standing", Three for Silver has been described as “the acid baby of Tom Waits and Victor Wooten” and promises to tickle your ears in only the best way possible. HOT DAMN SCANDAL finds its songs under park benches and in forgotten alleyways. The resulting outlaw ballads, dirty jazz, circus freakouts, shanty-rags, string band funk, lonesome heart-breakers, and whiskey bottle love songs blend together in a sweet song syrup somewhere between a ramble and a roar. Sometimes called ‘Tipsy American Gypsy Blues’, Hot Damn Scandal pulls no punches and and puts thunder in your molasses. INTUITIVE COMPASS are purveyors of nothing but the absolute finest in original Vaudevillian folk music and entertainment. Wild melodies conspire to lift you right up out of your seat and onto the dance floor, St. Vitus style, while soulful lyrics tug and tease at your heartstrings. http://www.facebook.com/events/1594817780733500/

Also incorporating dance, juggling, and acrobatics, NANDA performances are a mishmash of classic vaudeville, circus and modern live entertainment innovation. Company Cirque En Deroute http://www.companycirqueenderoute.com/ Company Cirque en Déroute is an acrobatic clown trio specializing in a wide range of eccentric skills including contemporary jar manipulation, tap dance juggling, and high level comedy acrobatics. Using a unique blend of contemporary circus and traditional American and European clowning, we have induced laughter from audiences throughout Europe, Central and North America, Australia, and Asia; each moment on stage bringing us closer to our goal of art within clown, clown within life, and life drenched with laughter. Ashia Bison Rouge http://ashiamusic.com/ "Powerfully Expressive Voice" (Kraftvoll wandelbare Stimme) Berliner Morgenpost “Captivating... a singular talent and a huge creative force” Portland Mercury “Absolutely Tremendous!” Capitol Public Radio With the cello, loop station, and her "Powerfully expressive voice" (Berliner Morgenpost), Ashia & the Bison Rouge will perform a special set of Cello Songs she has written for and in collaboration with circus acrobats and dancers for Berlin, DE based shows for this special Umbrella Festival Appearance. She will be performing with the Salem Chamber Orchestra April 12th. Ashia’s solo project songs and compositions, written and sung with the cello, loop station, ukulele, effects, and vocals, reflect her longing for her Slavic roots, while adding the pop, rock, indie folk, and classical of the land she grew up in. This comes naturally from being born in Wroclaw, Poland, raised in the US, and performing internationally with her solo project, Ashia & the Bison Rouge, as well as in theaters, alongside dancers, artist acrobats, including Cirque du Soleil, 'Der Helle Wahnsinn’ at Wintergarten Variety in Berlin, dUMMMY the Show, and Shakespeare Summer Festival in Ostrava, CZ. Her last full-length album ‘Diesel vs Lungs' was released on the German record label, JARO Median, and was in the top 20 of critically chosen World Music Charts October and November 2013. Under JARO Median, she is touring with outstanding singer-songwritiers through-out Europe as the ‘American Songbirds’. Jeff Evans http://amazementproductions.com/blog/about/ My name is Jeff Evans and since 1998 I’ve performed magic professionally throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Even in high school I was performing shows for money, and though I went to college (graduating from Central Washington University), I was performing magic on the side and had no intention of getting a “real job.” Today I perform over 250 shows each year, for events ranging from private parties to company banquets. Fortune 500 like Boeing, Microsoft, Pepsi Cola, and R. E. I. are just a few of my repeat clients. Like you, they know that they can count on top-quality entertainment that makes people glad they came. Smut City Jellyroll Society https://smutcityjellyrollsociety.wordpress.com The Smut City Jellyroll Society is a spinoff from the good old Hush Hush Smut Club, playing much of the same repertoire and with some of the same members. Hush Hush stills exists, but since co-founder Jenavieve Kachmarik is out of town for much of the year, the band has to take long breaks. So to keep our fans happy and our chops polished, we bring you the Smut City Jellyroll Society! We play music from the 20′s and 30′s, blues and early jazz from folks like Bessie Smith, Blind Blake and Blind Boy Fuller, Ma Rainey, Big Bill Broonzy, Harlem Hamfats and the Mississippi Sheiks among others. The sound is energetic and great to dance to, and the songs can be a little bit on the risque side. We are also writing and composing some original material in the style of the period.

Portland Revels marks its 20th annual Christmas Revels with a new production set in 17th century London during the Caroline era. The time of Charles I of England and the Three Musketeers will come vividly to life through period music, dance, costumes and European traditions in this holiday celebration from veteran Revels scriptwriter Gray Eubank.

Since climate change threatens the survival of life on earth, as we know it, why have we been so slow to respond? Addressing this complex question, Susan Griffin explores the false divisions our culture makes between body and soul, masculine and feminine, self and other that allow us to hide from our own knowledge. Invoking other traditions within both European and indigenous cultures that do not make the same divisions, she describes an alternate world view. This way of seeing is implicit in ecology and even within the physical structures of the human brain, (as well as in human psychology and intelligence, language, literary form and even the principles of democracy): the recognition that like a tree or a body of water, the soul does not exist in isolation. No matter how unique each of us may be, we are all born and sustained within natural and social eco-systems, and we all live, body and soul, in a network of relationships. Our efforts to avert even worse effects of climate change will be far more effective when we gain a deeper understanding of the reciprocity and interdependence that define and sustain every aspect of existence. Susan Griffin is an internationally celebrated writer whose books have been translated into 17 languages and widely anthologized. Among her 20 books, Woman and Nature is considered a classic of the environmental movement and A Chorus of Stones: the Private Life of War was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Lecture is at 7 pm, community gathering and reception follows at 8 pm.

Dear all, There is a memorial in Eugene, Oregon for Marshall Rosenberg. (also one in Portland; link here: https://facebook.com/events/1532129047061473 .) I am 'creating' (but not hosting nor organizing) this event, in order to publicize the below memorial (in Eugene). ** If you plan to attend, please RSVP by emailing the group leaders ** , per their request below -- they have included an email with which to do so (details below for RSVP process). I (Joseph Herbert) am in no way associated with CNVC nor ORNCC nor this memorial service -- other than that I am hoping to attend (not guaranteed), and am inviting you to attend, if you would like.. ======================= " 5. Eugene, Salem, and Central Oregon A. The Oregon Network for Compassionate Communication (ORNCC) is sponsoring a free community gathering to celebrate the life and teachings of the founder of Nonviolent Communication Marshall Rosenberg, who died February 7, 2015. WHERE: St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, 1300 Pearl St., Eugene 97401 WHEN: Thursday, April 9, 2015 from 7 to 9 pm (it will be rush-hour, so please allow extra time, incl. for parking, etc, if you are driving -- bicycling and/or Amtrak and/or local public transit are also efficient, sustainable, and lower-stress options than driving. If you must drive, perhaps carpool? (see Eugene's public transit website w/ all options, here: http://eugene-or.gov/index.aspx?NID=654 ) Dr. Rosenberg founded the Center for Nonviolent Communication (cnvc.org ) and for more than forty years traveled the world teaching the self-awareness and communication skills he developed. He changed the lives of many thousands of people, and left as part of his legacy teachers and groups of people learning and practicing the skills he developed that contribute to peace and compassion. People whose lives were enriched by Marshall’s teachings are invited to come together to celebrate Marshall and to acknowledge his contribution to their lives. This event will also be an opportunity for participants to join in creating a more engaged and active NVC community in the Eugene-Springfield area, dedicated to learning and spreading the teachings and consciousness of Compassionate Communication. ORNCC board members welcome co-founder Bryn Hazell and others from Bend who will share the experience of co-creating their NVC community in Central Oregon, which is celebrating more than ten years in existence. The Central Oregon team will participate in a discussion and planning session with the intention of inspiring and supporting a vibrant and sustainable NVC community in the Eugene-Springfield area. So that we can plan for the number of attendees, we would appreciate your contacting us at: secretary@orncc.net to let us know you plan to come. Join us in celebrating Marshall Rosenberg and helping to continue his work toward a more peaceful and alive world.

Film Screening Charles Lloyd was one of the most influential jazz musicians of the 1960s. His music crossed traditional boundaries and explored new territories. Catapulted into worldwide fame in his 20s, by his early 30s, he abandoned his life of touring and recording and went into seclusion in Big Sur, CA. Circumstance brought him back to a public life in the late 1980s. 'Arrows Into Infinity' is a journey in sound through the unusual life and career of this jazz legend. Lloyd's own voice, and those who worked with him over the last five decades help us discover and better understand this enigmatic man and his spiritual pursuit through music. This film is a collaborative work between Lloyd's wife Dorothy Darr; a painter, and videographer/filmmaker, Jeffery Morse. KBOO presents: CHARLES LLOYD: ARROWS INTO INFINITY Thursday, April 9, 7:00 pm. . Admission: suggested $7-10, no one turned away for lack of funds.

We are different from the mainstream culture when it comes to how we view sensuality and touch. Are we living our dream the way we really want to? As we grow into our new culture what issues are coming up that we want to address together? The meeting will cover issues that have come up for our groups, but will not focus exclusively on boundaries or consent. I believe that those issues point to the larger issues of growing pains for our new culture...for example how we tackle those issues will say more about our new culture than the issues themselves. Who are we and who do we want to be? A facilitated meeting for interconnected consent and connection based communities in our region. If you care about consent and consider yourself to be a member of consent community, please attend this important meeting. If you aren't sure if that's you, ask yourself whether you attend gatherings that have a safer spaces policy, written or otherwise, in which varying degrees of touch are allowed to occur. (This includes sexual, asexual, and platonic spaces.) Help us work toward transparency within our beautiful community. We are inviting communities that are dance and other movement-related communities that involve touch, LGBTQ and other sexual minorities; festivals and conventions that have touch-positive spaces or room parties; members of the kink and fetish communities; and members of alternative spirituality communities. Dawn Menken has been selected as the professional facilitator. She is a professor at The Process Work Institute in Portland. The school is internationally renowned for its work in conflict resolution. Students graduate with a master's degree and routinely go to some of the most conflicted areas in the world: Greece, Israel, and Ireland as examples. Learn more about the institute: http://www.processwork.org/ Dawn has been selected for her expertise in facilitating large group discussion processes in which the group remains singular rather than breaking out into smaller cells. This methodology allows for greater presence, communication and witnessing in the group at large. Dawn Menken, Ph.D., is a group facilitator, conflict resolution educator, and author. She is on the faculty at the graduate school at the Process Work Institute and has a private practice where she works with individuals, couples and families. She is the author of Speak Out: Talking About Love, Sex and Eternity and Raising Parents Raising Kids: Hands on Wisdom for the Next Generation. For more information about her work please see: www.dawnmenken.com. Cost: $10 Kristen Reynolds is graciously paying Dawn out-of-pocket in faith that the community will support her in this effort. If you truly cannot afford a $10 contribution, then please pay whatever you can. Any additional proceeds will be used toward start-up costs for the organization. http://www.facebook.com/events/362575127262498/

Dirty Queer is an X rated open mic: a place to celebrate sexuality and strut your creative stuff! Hosted by renegade writer and poet Sossity Chiricuzio, Dirty Queer has proven itself to be a thought provoking evening of excitement, passion, laughter and full body shivers. We're looking for queer erotic entertainers of all sorts: dancers, jugglers, singers, musicians, comics, poets, storytellers, magicians, gender performers ... if you can do it in 5 minutes or less (w/ minimal props/equip), this open mic's for you! We average over 120 people a month, so come early if you want a seat. Everyone who attends has a chance to win door prizes from local businesses, as well as a percentage off items at our very own feminist bookstore and host, IOW! Your donation of $1-$5/person for this event goes directly to supporting IOW, and more donations are always welcome. Caveats: 18+, consent is key, no hate speech, sign up is first come, first serve. Need a dose of Dirty Queer sooner than that? Come check out our photos, samples, bios, videos, and podcast on our website: www.dirtyqueer.com. Contact: info@dirtyqueer.com

Kimbra with Radiation City 7pm // All Ages Crystal Ballroom Kimbra is rapidly establishing herself both locally and internationally as a significant talent. A fresh, exciting creative spirit in today’s music industry. Maybe you know her from her hit singles Cameo Lover, Good Intent and Two Way Street, or you’re one of the many voters that helped put all three in the ranks of Triple J’s Hottest 100 – the world’s biggest music poll. Maybe you’re one of the 12,000,000+ total views of her stylish videos on YouTube. Or the fact that she won the ARIA for 2011 Best Female Artist. Perhaps you better recognise her from her duet with Gotyé on the world-conquering Somebody That I Used To Know, a chart-topping hit in 11 countries world-wide, and No. 1 for 8 weeks on the Australian singles chart. But the story goes further back. Spending her early years gigging around her native New Zealand, it was only once Kimbra borrowed a small eight-track recorder from her school’s musical department that her songwriting blossomed in earnest. After a furious period of creativity, including the inklings that would become her debut album, she was discovered by manager Mark Richardson of OutPost Management at the tender age of 17, who enabled her to relocate to Melbourne to follow her musical career. She’s been carving her own path ever since. Even at twenty-one years of age, Kimbra already possesses the maturity and musical sophistication of the mavericks she is so often compared to – from vocal legends Nina Simone and Jeff Buckley, to radicals the likes of Prince, and contemporary artists such as Björk and Janelle Monaé. Opening for Kimbra is Portland's Radiation City, a combo of classic bossa records and northern soul, equally space-aged and retro.

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

Buddy Jay’s Jamaican Jazz Band 9pm // 21+ The Goodfoot The Buddy Jay Jamaican Jazz Band was formed in 2012 by Saxophonist Buddy Jay Kieffer and Trumpeter John England Fisher. Destiny and a love and deep studious respect for all music Jamaican brought them together. After amassing an all star line up of Portland based musicians including Dr. Joe Cruz, and Joe Marquand amoungst others, they set out to do the ska. Writing original Jamaican jazz and rocksteady instrumentals designed for dancing has been the delight of both band members and audiences across the northwest. Buddy Jay and the band’s unique take on the genre of Jamaican jazz have allowed them to feel equally comfortable sharing the stage with bands performing a meried of styles including, Cumbia, Afro beat, Soul, and R and B to name a few. The current lineup features members of All The Apparatus, Love Bomb A GO GO, 78 Griots, The Isrealites, The Dr. Joe Trio, Raffa De Alaska and the DCB, and more. The Band recently finished recording their first demo record live in the studio of the map room, and is currently writing music for a full length record to be released on vinyl later this year. These heavy hitters always bring the party and never play a room without a dance floor (the horn players often join in the dancing themselves, circling the crowd and rocking the audience in a second line spiritual fashion). Stay tuned folks because Buddy Jay is here to stay!

Robert Glasper Experiment 8pm // 21+ Dantes With a unique fusion of R&B, jazz, and hip-hop that brazenly traverses the boundaries of all three genres, Glasper and his musical cohorts create in a vibrant new chasm, brilliantly mixing jazz, blues, gospel, R&B, rock, and hip-hop. Reared in a household where Motown, R&B, and gospel were constant companions, Glasper's mother sang and played piano in church while indulging in her love for jazz and blues by performing at local clubs. By the age of twelve, he’d begun to fully follow his mother’s lead by playing piano in church and accompanying her on club dates on the Houston circuit. Glasper went on to sharpen his prodigal chops at the Houston High School for the Performing Arts and New School University, allowing his developing affinity for pop, hip-hop, and rock to inform his musical sensibilities. By 2003, Glasper had already racked up spots in the bands of prominent jazz artists such as Christian McBride, Kenny Garrett, Nicholas Payton, Terence Blanchard, and Roy Hargrove. In addition, his deep appreciation of hip-hop and R&B allowed him to form lateral bonds in those respective worlds. Guided by his mother’s example, Glasper simultaneously performed jazz while taking gigs as a touring musician and musical director for artists such as Maxwell, yasiin bey, Q-Tip, and Bilal. With an impressive wealth of experience and talent, it was only a matter of time before he’d become an artist in his own right. That same year, he released his debut album Mood on Fresh Sound Records. Blue Note signed Glasper soon after and released his label debut Canvas (2005), followed by In My Element (2007) and Double-Booked (2009) – his first GRAMMY-nominated effort which juxtaposed his acoustic Trio with the electric Experiment band. While those albums were primarily rooted in jazz, he made certain to sprinkle his other musical influences into the stew. But in 2012, he decided it was time to serve the full main course. Glasper’s Black Radio was released that year to a maelstrom of critical acclaim. Featuring the likes of Erykah Badu, Bilal, Lupe Fiasco, Lalah Hathaway, Ledisi, Meshell Ndegeocello, and Yasiin Bey, the album was cultivated via a series of jam sessions with artists from varying genres whom Glasper formed alliances with during his time in the music industry. “Everybody just came to the studio and we did stuff on the spot,” he says. “That was the vibe. I wasn’t thinking R&B.” Black Radio was heralded by media outlets such as Rolling Stone, who wrote “Glasper heads down the fraught path of hip-hop jazz and gets it right,” adding “with music this smart and inviting, the implied diss of mainstream doesn’t feel like sour grapes; it feels like a blueprint forward.” The lead single “Ah Yeah” with Chrisette Michele and Musiq Soulchild landed on radio playlists nationwide, and TV appearances on Late Show With David Letterman, Tonight Show With Jay Leno and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon followed. But when Black Radio took home the award for Best R&B Album at the 2013 GRAMMY Awards, there was no doubt that all eyes were on Glasper and his band of musical brothers. In the wake of the GRAMMY win, offers to collaborate were abundant and bountiful. This withstanding, Glasper chose to curate his next aural exhibit more keenly to achieve a specifically desired effect. “Black Radio got so much love from the R&B world, so I made a conscious decision to concentrate a bit more on songs for this record,” he says of the anomalous coup. With that, Glasper set out to focus on R&B song structure that complimented his jazz pianist chops as well as that of the rest of Robert Glasper Experiment – Casey Benjamin (saxophone/vocoder), Derrick Hodge (bass), and Mark Colenburg (drums). With this concept firmly in hand, Glasper reached out to noted R&B songwriters to collaborate with. Soon afterwards, he ensconced himself in the legendary Los Angeles recording studio Westlake Studios with the members of the Experiment and a handful of guest vocalists to craft material for the new album. The glowing results from this session and subsequent sessions in Los Angeles and New York City are evidenced throughout the 12 dynamic tracks on Black Radio 2. Featuring the scintillating vocals of multi-platinum superstar Brandy, GRAMMY-nominated songwriter Claude Kelly (Bruno Mars, R Kelly, Michael Jackson) paints a melodic portrait of a languishing love affair on the head nodding cut “What Are We Doing.” GRAMMY-winning Roc Nation songwriter Andrea Martin (Melanie Fiona, Angie Stone, Monica) contributes a tale of longing on the intensely passionate “Yet To Find” as lauded recording artist Anthony Hamilton infuses the track with his patented brand of grit n’ soul. Conversely, Detroit recording artist Dwele brims with the confidence and assurance of a love supreme on the Rhodes embroidered “Worries,” penned by Young Money recording artist and GRAMMY-winning songwriter PJ Morton (India.Arie, Maroon 5, Stevie Wonder). Yet even with the proven songwriting talent of his aforementioned company, Glasper exhibits the wisdom to allow some of his featured guests the freedom to flex their skill behind the mic as well as with the pen. The results are brilliantly exemplified in the album’s soaring opening track “I Stand Alone” that was crafted with collaborators Common and Patrick Stump, and the lead single, “Calls” featuring Jill Scott, where Scott weaves a story of a metaphysical romantic connection partly quantified in answered phone calls over a lush bed of Glasper’s dreamy piano chords. The mesmerizing mid tempo track “Trust” follows suite featuring the crystalline vocals of singer/ songwriter Marsha Ambrosius, who is a noted songwriter in her own right having penned the Michael Jackson hit “Butterflies.” Black Radio 2 also features pensive spoken word interludes interspersed amongst the musical mélange by esteemed African American academic/ author Michael Eric Dyson and gospel singer/ preacher John P. Kee. Poet/actor Malcolm-Jamal Warner made a spontaneous and meaningful contribution to the album when he dropped by the studio and ended up penning and recording a thought-provoking slice of spoken word poetry on the profoundly poignant and symbolic rendition of the Stevie Wonder gem “Jesus Children Of America,” featuring the vocals of Black Radio alumnus Lalah Hathaway. The song is fashioned as a tribute to the victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook tragedy and has a deeply personal meaning for Glasper. “The very first time I performed that song live was during a Stevie Wonder tribute on the day the Sandy Hook tragedy took place,” he recalls. “I’d also found out that a close friend lost his daughter in the tragedy. So when we did the Stevie song, I almost lost it. It hit close to home, because I have a four-year-old son.” Amidst the immense star power, Black Radio 2 also manages to shine a light on buzz worthy newcomers like BRIT Award winning U.K. artist Emeli Sandé (“Somebody Else”) and Island Def Jam recording artist Luke James (“Persevere” featuring Snoop Dogg and Lupe Fiasco). In addition to the original 12 tracks, the deluxe edition of Black Radio 2 includes four bonus tracks: “I Don’t Even Care” featuring Jean Grae and Macy Gray, “Big Girl Body” featuring Eric Roberson, “My Everything” featuring Bilal and Jazmine Sullivan, and an instrumental cover of the classic Bill Withers tune “Lovely Day” featuring a spoken intro from Mr. Withers himself who made a surprise visit to the studio in Los Angeles. Black Radio 2 further exemplifies Glasper’s remarkable skill as a producer and musician adept at extracting a truly extraordinary side of his guests’ acclaimed talents, irrespective of differences in genre. It is also a magnificent display of an undaunted jazz composer intent on allowing the full range of his musical influences ebb and flow through his output in an astonishing fashion. Black Radio 2 serves as a conceptually illustrious reminder of the multitude of possibilities for musical collaboration and blurring the lines. But for Glasper, this is merely second nature. “Jazz musicians are becoming more comfortable with music that speaks to them personally,

Goapele 8pm // 21+ Star Theater Seamlessly blending genres while refusing to be limited by the “neo-soul” tag, the eloquent singer/songwriter completed her first release Closer in 2001 and never looked back. Embraced from the beginning by critics and fans alike, Goapele craved the perfect niche for herself as she created music that fused jazz, soul and hip-hop with her own beautiful poetry. Yet, while the Oakland native and former Berklee College of Music student has continued to grow as artist and live performer in the eleven years since her debut, Goapele is also known as a savvy businesswoman. Not content to be merely another singer lost in the machine, Goapele’s follow-up recordings Even Closer (2002) and Change It All (2005) were released through majors in conjunction with her own independent label Skyblaze. “I like being more hands on when it comes to my music,” Goapele says of the family owned independent label. “Establishing Skyblaze allowed me to have a more direct connection with my business as well as the music.” While Rolling Stone magazine once called Goapele the “spiritual love child of Sade and D’Angelo,” her searing voice can be both sensuous and serious, often on the same song. After taking off six years from recording, Goapele has returned to the forefront of the music scene with Break of Dawn, a collection of sophisticated songs dealing with love, loss and all the life in between.

We love local bike shops. They tune up our bikes after long, wet winters. Their staff ride on the same bike routes and trails that we do. They don't mind if we try on every helmet in the store before making a decision and, for BTA members, they'll usually knock 10% off the price. The Bicycle Transportation Alliance has teamed up with Base Camp Brewing to pay tribute to these local hubs of bike community. Every month, we have "BTA Shop Beers" at a different local bike shop. Find out what's new in your community, learn about the BTA, and have a beer with friends old and new. _____________ April's BTA Shop Beers will be at Seven Corners Cycles in SE Portland. Fun fact about Seven Corners: If you buy a bike from them, they'll adjust it, for free, for life! Brake pads worn out? You buy new pads and they'll install them for free. Not shifting right? Stop by and they'll tweak 'em for free. No wonder customers swear by Seven Corners! http://www.7-corners.com

Juno What 9pm // 21+ The Goodfoot Juno What?! is a shameless dance party based in the music mecca of Denver, CO. This powerhouse quartet delivers a deeply satisfying mix of live electro-funk and high-energy disco booty jams. The band formed in 2008 as an outlet for Joey Porter’s (The Motet) organic-meets-electronic dance compositions and since has released three independent albums (Late Night, Shameless, and Late Night Live). Touring regularly since 2009, Juno What?! has shared the stage with funk luminaries such as Ohio Players and Bernie Worrell, and most of the top of the crop of contemporary groove masters. Juno What?! audiences are treated to a band that appreciates both the classic pedigree of vintage vinyl dance cuts as well as futuristic sternum-bumping anthems. The band consists of Joey Porter (keyboards, talkbox), fellow Motet-eer Garrett Sayers (bass, synth bass), Denver guitarist at large Dan Schwindt and first call drummer Tyrone Hendrix. This core group is often augmented by special guests taken from the best of the gigging groups on the scene (including founding member Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic). These musicians have gathered their collective talents to focus on this mission of making the world a better place… to dance!

Gramatik 7pm // 18+Roseland Theater Gramatik has always been an early adopter. It began at the age of 3, when his mother would catch him glued to the radio in his older sister’s room, checking out the cassette tapes with American funk, jazz, soul and blues. He started making his first beats on an early PC by the time he was 13, and soon the kid from Portoroz, Slovenia figured out how to harvest the power of free file sharing to build a following throughout the US & Europe. Tracks spread, hype grew, tours followed, and before long his digital persona forged the initial inroads into the US market, landing him both a label and an agency.Gramatik landed on US soil as a fully formed artist who knows how to do things his way. He signed to a label, Pretty Lights Music, that gives all of its music away for free, which went hand in hand with his own philosophy about ”freeing music by making music free”. Soon after, he scooped up his hometown crew and moved to Brooklyn, NY. Alongside Gramatik, the multimedia collective known as Dream Big features guitarist and producer F.A.Q, video director and filmmaker Anze Koron and graphic and web designer Martin Kenjic, with whom he has been friends since they were kids, sitting in a small town on the Adriatic coast, dreaming of breaking out into the wide world beyond. Now’s the time. Of his new record #digitalfreedom Gramatik says, “My new EP bares the title #digitalfreedom. As an artist that based his entire career on the platform of free file sharing, I’m dedicating it to the fight against severe internet censorship bills we’ve been hearing about so much in the past months. Bastards have been trying to cripple the internet on a global scale with bills like ACTA/SOPA/PIPA and I’m sure there’s more of them coming, so this one goes out for spreading awareness! Reject them all, they will never stop the sharing, the Internet is our realm, DIGITAL FREEDOM!” With over 100,000 tracks sold on Beatport.com, topping all kinds of genre charts, Gramatik has clearly matured into a world-class producer. He earned nominations for “Best Chill Out Artist” and “Best Chill Out Track” at the 2010 and 3 best track awards at the 2012 Beatport Music Awards. More recently, after posting a clever remix of Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven”, he shot to number 1 on HypeMachine in a matter of hours, and has been since appearing in the site’s ‘popular’ top 10 chart with every new release. Within the US, it’s been a huge year of growth for Gramatik, performing at festivals across the US and alongside labelmate Pretty Lights, including epic sold out shows at Red Rocks.

Lyrics Born & Black Milk with Neka & Kahlo 8pm // 21+ Alhambra Theater Amongst the dusty records of UC Davis’ KDVS college radio station, Tom Shimura, who currently makes records as Lyrics Born, found too much to love. Sandwiched between gatefold LPs, 12-inch singles, dub versions and white-labels was a reservoir of inspiration that he would draw on for the following decades. That was then. This is now. Since his college days, Bay Area-native Lyrics Born’s raw, authentic talent has been polished to a gleaming beacon of originality in a time when it’s needed most, and it’s release marks a new era of label relations. “The old model is dead, you cant just put it out and expect people to get it”, explains LB, and the statement could easily be applied to his sound or his approach to marketing the finished product. Born and raised in Detroit on the sounds of A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul, Curtis Cross found out at an early age that he had a talent for hip-hop, especially for beats. He spent hours in his basement — at first with just a cheap drum machine and a home karaoke system, eventually moving up to more sophisticated MPCs and samplers — making tapes. One of these tapes got into the hands of fellow DetroitersSlum Village, who were impressed by what they heard and invited Cross to produce a track on their 2002 mixtape Dirty District, as well as on their official full-length Trinity (Past, Present and Future). After that, Cross, who was going asBlack Milk, teamed up with producer RJ Rice, Jr. (or Young RJ) as the group B.R. Gunna, rhyming and making beats on the duo’s 2004 release Dirty District, Vol. 2. That same year, Slum Village, who were looking for production work because usual beatmakers Waajeed and Kareem Riggins were busy with other projects, hired B.R. Gunna for 11 of the 13 tracks on their Detroit Deli LP.

Thanks + Grey Waves + Survival Skills TICKETS @ THE DOOR / 7pm / 21+ Valentine's The six-piece dark soul/rock n roll ensemble, Thanks, is pleased to announce the independent release of their first full length album Blood Sounds, January 4, 2014. The 12-track album, available on CD and digital download, is Thanks’ second release, following the 2012 EP, Silver Scars Will Be Our Constellations, which was featured on iTunes “New and Noteworthy Artists.” No strangers to their local Portland music scene, Thanks is made up of members from myriad former musical endeavors, which ranged from folk-twinged ballads, to dance electronic, to girl group garage punk. While keeping these eclectic influences close to heart, Thanks has carved out its niche as a distinct new voice within Portland indie music. Elements of soul, R&B and early rock n roll blend seamlessly with modern dark synth tones, catchy indie-pop hooks, and a driving sense of immediacy. Portland Mercury music editor Ned Lannamann raves, “I’m not the first to point out how six-piece Portland band Thanks incorporates soul into their decidedly black-hearted indie rock. I suppose the soul connection is just easy shorthand for saying that Thanks’ music is vital, gripping, and different. Indeed, Blood Sounds is an apt name for this terrific, fiery collection, as the music is bloody and bruised, forming tightly controlled tantrums of melody and rhythm, marshaled by Jimi’s commanding voice. What none of this conveys, though, is how the end result effectively becomes fun, bright pop of a very high caliber, with indestructible, earworm-y songs, and beats that implore you to move. Consider Thanks’ Blood Sounds the first great Portland album of 2014.” Now, Thanks is poised to take this entourage on the road. In support of Blood Sounds, Thanks will embark on a European tour, scheduled for April and May, which includes dates across Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. They are currently selling out venues in their native Portland, but have set their sights on the far horizon. As Gabriel Granach, of Eleven Magazine, predicts, “If Thanks continue in their current trajectory, the next stop is world domination.”

Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) + Bad Brains 8pm // 21+ Roseland Theater SOMF’15 is very proud to present for the very first time ever two legends of their respective genres together for what will surely be an unforgettable night of music—Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def) + Bad Brains. This show will feature both a set by Yasiin featuring his unrivaled Hip-Hop catalog, as well as a Bad Brains set with Yasiin as lead vocalist. Yasiin Bey has been a seminal member of the Hip-Hop community since his emergence in the mid-90’s, releasing some of the most timeless records the genre has produced. Both Black Star and Black on Both Sides were deemed instant classics that gained him enormous world-wide acclaim. After years of acting in various well received film and television roles, in addition to being the host of Russel Simmon’s Presents Def Poetry , Bey returned to the music world with the Grammy-nominated The Ecstatic in 2010. The members of Bad Brains started out playing ’70s jazz-rock fusion, but took a sharp turn when they began breaking up their live sets into reggae and punk. Together with Black Flag and the Dead Kennedys, the band became pioneers of punk’s hardcore fringe, influencing nearly every subsequent hardcore or quasi-hardcore outfit, including the earliest incarnation of the Beastie Boys. As an all-black rock band, they also inspired Living Colour and the entire New York City Black Rock Coalition of the ’80s, as well as the Rock/Reggae bands of the 90’s such as Sublime. Bad Brains, to this day, stand at the crossroads of styles that has changed the face of music forever.

Wild Ones + Purse Candy + Break Mode (KPSU Kruise) 21+ // 9pm Portland Spirit SOMF is once again co-presenting the KPSU Kruise on the Portland Spirit, a beautiful River boat rolling down the Willamette. This year celebrating KPSU’s 25th anniversary transmitting in Portland and we are happy to help celebrate with them with a great show. Featuring Wild Ones, Purse Candy and Break Mode, this special event will sell out quick, so get your tickets locked in! In late 2012, Wild Ones was on the verge of collapse. Guitarist Clayton Knapp had blown out an eardrum, the band’s original drummer left the group and his replacement, Seve Sheldon, was in the hospital with a punctured lung, practicing songs on a drum pad with a tube sticking out of his chest. The band’s members had funneled all of their money into a debut record, Keep It Safe, that had taken a year to write and nine months to record and mix. Fans and followers began to wonder if that record would ever see the light of day. It was make-or-break time. Wild Ones made. Instead of folding in the face of financial drama, injuries and personnel changes, Wild Ones took a deep breath and adjusted to its new surroundings. This band is used to adjusting. Since its formation in 2010, Wild Ones has insisted on operating as a DIY collective. The band recorded and mixed its debut as a group (with help from engineer David Pollock). Sometimes considering each members’ opinion meant endless revisits and tweaks to the album’s tracks. The process was time-consuming, but it was also worth it. “That was a reaction to the bands we had been in before,” says lead vocalist Danielle Sullivan. “This band was born out of our desire to have a democratic, all-inclusive music-making process.” Going it alone—even the artwork on Keep It Safe was created by Wild Ones keyboardist Thomas Himes—comes with its fair share of challenges. Most of Wild Ones’ debut was recorded in a two-story East Portland warehouse rehearsal space, where the band was surrounded on all sides by rock acts like Quasi and the Thermals. Wild Ones would get to their practice space around 8 am to record, often grabbing quick takes between thunderous drum solos from down the hall. “Somewhere on the record, if you listen close enough, you can probably hear the metal band next door,” Himes says. “When we went in that room in March, it was raining,” says Knapp. “When we finished recording in October, it was raining.” Keep It Safe, the album that finally emerged after well over a year of gestation, is bigger than the sum of its meticulously gathered parts. Even now, the band’s sound continues to evolve. Wild Ones’ members come from vastly disparate musical backgrounds—guitarist Nick Vicario was a Portland punk icon long before he turned 18; bassist Max Stein is a classical composer—and all of their experiences inform pop music that is influenced by everything from german techno to American R&B. These are sounds that don’t usually come packaged together, but in the able hands of Wild Ones, they seem like a perfectly natural fit.

Delhi 2 Dublin 8pm // 21+ Alhambra Theater Hour Magazine wrote that “Delhi 2 Dublin is the United Nations of rock ‘n’ roll”. They are a Vancouver based band that plays an energetic mash-up of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub Reggae and Electronica with global rhythms and club beats. Tarun Nayar, Sanjay Seran, Andrew Kim and Ravi Binning along with touring musician Sara Fitzpatrick are diverse in both their backgrounds and musical influences. They have been together over five years and released four albums and an EP including its latest, Delhi 2 Dubland. The Delhi 2 Dublin crew is constantly touring. The musicians feel that they plug directly into the world’s music and energy. The strong word-of-mouth for their live performances has enabled them to build a loyal fan base. Originality and evolution are all part of the Delhi 2 Dublin experience. They have become one of Canada’s most buzzed-about bands and 2012 will only see them enhancing that reputation.

The Quick & Easy Boys with Euforquestra 8pm // 21+ Dante's The Quick & Easy Boys, a power-trio out of Portland, Oregon, create their own blend of garage-pop, psychedelic rock and soul. Imagine The Minutemen, The Police, Deer Tick andFunkadelic rolled into one. Formed in 2005, The Quick & Easy Boys quickly made a name for themselves in Eugene, Oregon before heading north and building a Portland, OR fanbase. Their shows are an interactive party with electrifying stage antics and profound musical moments as the trio pours out every ounce of their energy, leaving nothing behind. The band has gained the reputation for moving a crowd all-night long whether it be a big festival or a tiny watering hole. The core members—Jimmy Russell on guitar/vocals, Sean Badders on vocals/bass, and Michael Goetz on drums—have continued to evolve musically…and audiences continue their enthusiastic calling of “Yeah Bud!” at every show. One critic from Oregon Music News even prophesied “I predict that within a couple of years, the band’s rallying-cry, ‘Yeah, Bud!’ will be on bumper stickers from Beaverton to Bonnaroo and beyond.” The 2008 release of Bad Decisions With Good People left fans raving about their unique and vibrant sound and led to their their first national tour. Two more tours followed the release ofRed Light Rabbit in 2010, and in 2013 the Boys dropped their latest effort, Make It Easy, backed by constant multi-regional and national touring. They’ve opened both locally and nationally for Deer Tick (guitarist Jimmy Russell is featured on their latest album Negativity), and a list of other artist that reflect the diverse inspirations behind The Quick & Easy Boys’ music, including The Meat Puppets, Blitzen Trapper, Southern Culture on the Skids, J. Roddy Walston and The Business, The Bridge,The Pimps of Joytime, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Bob Wayne & The Outlaw Carnies, Vince Herman and many others.

CeDell Davis with Tuatara and Down North 8pm // 21+ Star Theater If you think you’re tough, you need to hear the story of CeDell Davis, legendary Delta Bluesman. His story will set you straight, as it certainly did for me. Lots of people talk about being tough when they play the Blues (or Rock & Roll, Hip-Hop, and Country for that matter) but CeDell Davis, more than anyone I’ve ever met in my life, has literally lived and played the hardest Blues around. He’s one of the toughest men in music, a fighter who will not quit, a man who has never surrendered. I started working with CeDell back in the spring of 2002, when he was already 50 years into his music career. I was asked to put a back-up band together, and the idea was to have a group of rock musicians back up CeDell to show respect for the musical tradition that laid the foundation for almost every form of American popular music that has happened since the beginning of the 20th century. I played the drums, Peter Buck of REM played guitar, REM sideman Scott McCaughey played keyboards, and Joe Cripps of Brave Combo played percussion. We recorded the whole thing in about three days in Denton, Texas, and I released the album in the summer of 2003 on my label Fast Horse Recordings. The result was the critically acclaimed album When Lightnin’ Struck the Pine, which was followed by an extensive tour of the United States using the same back-up band as on the album, with CeDell parked in his wheelchair at center stage every night. This album was mainly recorded with everyone playing together live, with CeDell singing along in real time. Only the keyboards and some hand percussion were overdubbed after we picked the takes. We work like the steel workers who tried to unionize here, playing for hours and eating bologna sandwiches and salt peanuts from the local country store. We wash it all back with iced beer, but on Sunday the beer runs out and we’re in Yalobusha County, a dry county. For the first time in my life, I have to make a run across the county line to buy beer on a Sunday afternoon. It is a mission, indeed, it is a holy mission, because CeDell can only sing with an ice-cold beer in his weathered hand. It’s exciting to break this religious law, because some laws are just made to be broken and this is certainly one of them.

(Adults & ages 10+) The wonderful thing about story telling is that it is a folk art rather than a fine art. Far from having to balance on your toes or hit high C, all one has to do is figure out how they tell best. During this workshop we will play with and stretch all of your potential assets for making a story you love come alive for listeners. From dramatic use of your voice, an expressive body, an imagination that creates images in thin air, to dancing fingers, participants will play with techniques. Ultimately, you will emerge with a broader palette of expressive tools to choose from in your storytelling. This is part of Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS) 11th Annual Storytelling Festival - Art of the Story, which runs April 11 - 18. Admission is free and the festival performances are designed for the enjoyment of adults. This program also welcomes children ages 10 and up.

Kiesza 7pm // All Ages Hawthorne Theater Canadian-born, Brooklyn-based pop singer Kiesza makes dance-oriented music that touches upon house music, modern EDM, and R&B. Born in Calgary, Kiesza participated in theater, ballet, and tap dancing before joining the Royal Canadian Navy at 17, where she was trained as a code breaker. At 18, Kiesza also competed in the Miss Universe Canada pageant before focusing on a music career. Leaving the Navy, she attended Berklee College of Music in Boston on a scholarship. After graduating, she relocated to New York City and began performing her folky singer/songwriter compositions. Eventually, Kiesza found herself drawn to dance music and began collaborating with producer Rami Samir Afuni. In 2014, she released the Hideaway EP. “Hideaway” itself topped the U.K. and Scottish singles charts upon its April release and received significant airplay in the U.S. when it was released that July. A few months later, Kiesza’s full-length debut, Sound of a Woman, arrived, mixing her house-influenced pop with hip-hop-tinged tracks and featuring cameos by Mick Jenkins and Joey Bada$$.

Allen Stone 7pm // All Ages Roseland Theater In the past two years, Allen Stone has gone from being a soul singer from Chewelah, WA to selling out venues where the audience is bigger than his hometown’s entire population – and it blows his mind. “Basically my job is to throw a party for people every night when we’re on tour,” he says with a sense of wonder. Stone’s world has expanded dramatically since he released his self-titled album on his own stickystones label in late 2011. It shot into the Top 10 of Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and entered the Top 5 of iTunes’ R&B/Soul charts and soon the unsigned artist was appearing on shows like “Conan,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Last Call with Carson Daly” and “Live from Daryl’s House.” USA Today hailed him as a “pitch-perfect powerhouse” and The New York Times’ Jon Pareles likened his socially conscious music to that of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Bill Withers. Stone was voted one of mtvU’s “Freshman 5″ in late 2012 and tapped as VH1’s first “You Oughta Know” artist of 2013. His new album, which Stone is co-producing with Swedish soul singer/multi-instrumentalist Magnus Tingsek, will be released later this year by Capitol Records.

Dezarie and Vieux Farke Touré co-bill 8pm // 21+ Wonder Ballroom Often referred to as “The Hendrix of the Sahara”, Vieux Farka Toure was born in Niafunké, Mali in 1981. He is the son of legendary Malian guitar player Ali Farka Toure, who died in 2006. Ali Farka Touré came from a historical tribe of soldiers, and defied his parents in becoming a musician. When Vieux was in his teens, he declared that he also wanted to be a musician. His father dissaproved due to the pressures he had experienced being a musician. Rather, he wanted Vieux to become a soldier. But with help from family friend the kora maestro Toumani Diabaté, Vieux eventually convinced his father to give him his blessing to become a musician shortly before Ali passed.

This is the organization’s largest fundraiser, held in cooperation with students from the adjacent Center for Agriculture, Science, and Environmental Education who will be selling landscaping plants as well as vegetable starts. NatureScaping is offering a wide selection of native & fruit trees, shrubs, and perennials starting at only $8, $5, and $1 respectively. There will be Mason Bee cocoons 10 for $15 and garden photos. Quantities of the most popular varieties will be limited but members of NatureScaping get the best selection early on April 25th at 9:00 am. Membership is only $20 and can be purchased on site. NatureScaping will also have people on hand during the sale to answer any questions and to assist in loading plants. One of the best ways a homeowner can learn about which plants are right for their site is to visit the Gardens where natives are incorporated along with self-sufficient food production and more traditional landscape designs. NatureScaping maintains several specialty theme gardens, open year round and spread over three acres in Southwest Washington. The gardens, and devoted volunteer gardeners, demonstrate and teach area residents classes in pruning, mason bee keeping, and other gardening concepts that attract birds, butterflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife to residential gardens. All proceeds benefit NatureScaping in its mission to help educate the public about wildlife friendly gardening practices and the use of native plants.

Portland Revels marks its 20th annual Christmas Revels with a new production set in 17th century London during the Caroline era. The time of Charles I of England and the Three Musketeers will come vividly to life through period music, dance, costumes and European traditions in this holiday celebration from veteran Revels scriptwriter Gray Eubank. Beginning in the Tower of London in 2014, the Christmas Revels Keep Magic follows a young teen who, after being transported back in time, meets Henry Percy the Wizard Earl, and Morley, a resourceful prankster. Bruce Hostetler directs and Robert Lockwood is the musical director, with a cast featuring Tobias Andersen and Burl Ross. Christmas Revels is a popular form of seasonal production that features traditional dances, music and songs in celebration of the winter solstice. Familiar highlights of the Portland Revels’ annual event include mumming, the medieval Abbots Bromley Horn dance, and the central showpiece, the Lord of the Dance. Tickets $7.00-$39.00 Details and tickets at portlandrevels.org

In Other Words' Adult Young Adult Book Club is a fun, casual discussion group for fans of YA literature. We meet at In Other Words on the third Thursday of each month to discuss young adult novels through a feminist/queer lens. How do our reactions to YA literature change as we age? What messages do authors send to young people? Do the stories line up with our memories of being teenagers? We read contemporary work and also revisit classic authors like Judy Blume and SE Hinton. Sound interesting? Join our Facebook group (www.facebook.com/groups/142378029143391/) to see what we've read so far, and to stay updated on what we're reading next!

Portland Revels marks its 20th annual Christmas Revels with a new production set in 17th century London during the Caroline era. The time of Charles I of England and the Three Musketeers will come vividly to life through period music, dance, costumes and European traditions in this holiday celebration from veteran Revels scriptwriter Gray Eubank. Beginning in the Tower of London in 2014, the Christmas Revels Keep Magic follows a young teen who, after being transported back in time, meets Henry Percy the Wizard Earl, and Morley, a resourceful prankster. Bruce Hostetler directs and Robert Lockwood is the musical director, with a cast featuring Tobias Andersen and Burl Ross. Christmas Revels is a popular form of seasonal production that features traditional dances, music and songs in celebration of the winter solstice. Familiar highlights of the Portland Revels’ annual event include mumming, the medieval Abbots Bromley Horn dance, and the central showpiece, the Lord of the Dance. Tickets $7.00-$39.00 Details and tickets at portlandrevels.org

Can breakdancing save the world? From executive producer and rapper Nasir “Nas” Jones, who also provides original music for the film, we are treated to a fascinating look at how hip-hop is striking a resonant chord in the slums, favelas and ghettos of the world and is inspiring young people to enact social change. Hip-hop music, and the acrobatic breakdancing culture that arose in tandem with it, started on the streets of The Bronx, but its reach is now worldwide. Today, “b-boys” and a growing number of “b-girls” hone their gravity-defying breaking techniques in virtually every country on the planet. SHAKE THE DUST, by journalist-turned-filmmaker Adam Sjöberg, chronicles the far-reaching influence of breakdancing. Shot in Colombia, Cambodia, Uganda and Yemen, the film shows that while each culture adopts and adapts hip-hop music, blending it with their own traditions, the breakdancing moves act as a universal language. Moving smoothly between breakdance crews in the poorest urban neighborhoods of these countries, Sjöberg weaves together the stories of rappers, DJs, and b-boys across three continents, revealing how breakdancing today acts as a positive force for social change. Older generations are passing along their moves and showing kids, most of whom are orphans, that the “family” of hip-hop can be an alternative to street gangs and drug addiction. With a soundtrack of globe-spanning hip-hop samples and some of the most jaw-dropping breakdancing moves ever committed to film, SHAKE THE DUST is an inspiring tribute to the uplifting power of music and movement.

350PDX is hosting a benefit concert with the talented Kathleen Dean Moore and Rachelle McCabe. The truths of our time are deeply challenging – the on-rushing extinctions, the coming storms, and the moral necessity of safeguarding Earth’s abundance of lives. Words alone cannot express the urgency of action, and so we turn to music. Kathleen Dean Moore & Rachelle McCabe (OSU) present a program of words and music, based on an interpretation of Rachmaninoff’s “Variations on a Theme of Corelli,” Op. 42 (1931).  Kathleen Dean Moore is a philosopher, environmental advocate, and award-winning writer whose recent co-edited book is Moral Ground: Ethical Actions for a Planet in Peril. Distinguished Professor of Philosophy Emerita at Oregon State University, she speaks around the country about the moral urgency of stopping a global carbon catastrophe. Rachelle McCabe, concert pianist and Professor of Music at Oregon State University, enjoys an international career as an artist-teacher and as a solo recitalist and highly respected chamber musician. She has performed extensively in the United States, Canada, Southeast Asia and England, and has been heard on NPR's Performance Today, the CBC, and PBS television.
